The F-Bomb dropped once again on 2SM

Friday 06 March, 2015
You would think 2SM would know where their dump button was by now.
Just weeks after John Laws copped an expletive mouthful from a caller with a clear dislike for the veteran shock-jock, the F-Bomb has once again slipped through to the keeper.

Lawsie’s reaction?

“Ooh dear, dear, dear…it’s a long reach did we get it? I think we got it.” “Tell us (laughs), such a nice quietly spoken lady…out of the blue you get that”.

Oops Lawsie, delay not working

Thursday 05 February, 2015
John Laws copped an expletive mouthful from caller Lee this morning, who had a clear dislike for the veteran shock-jock.

Luckily radio stations know how to use their dump buttons right?

Wrong, for 2SM at least.

“Can you believe that? The language of that fellow. We dumped it thank God”, said Laws under the presumption that his producer had reacted quickly enough to the swearing.

'You are a nasty piece of work Norman'

Friday 29 August, 2014
"If you shut up for a minute... let me tell you, that is radio, we are a family," 2SM's John Laws told serial pest Norman, when he went two rounds on air with him this morning.

Amongst other insults, Norman told Lawsy "you've got no pull any more, if you want something done for you go to Hadley, don't go to John Laws."

After a couple of rounds with Laws, caller Barbara, one of Lawsy's 'colourful' listeners, also got on air to exchange a few harsh words with Norman.

Listen to the verbal boxing match below.

Lawsy in trouble for giving out phone number of 'gutless idiot' caller

Thursday 21 August, 2014

2SM's John Laws has breached the privacy provisions of the Commercial Radio Codes of Practice by broadcasting a caller’s personal phone number on air.

On 25 November last year Laws read out and responded to emails from a listener criticising his response to an earlier caller and referring to ‘cash for comment.’

Which station has the dumbest listeners?

Monday 14 July, 2014
If you were choosing the the station with the dumbest listeners based on breakfast this morning, you'd have to back 2SM.

Their star performer was Fred who rang in as part of a contest and was asked a simple question; who was the lead singer of Queen?

Fred turned out to be simpler than the question...

At noon Bob Rogers takes listeners on a "journey through insanity"

Tuesday 10 June, 2014

50 years ago The Beatles touched down in Australia on Wednesday June 11, 1964 with Bob Rogers on board. At 37, he was already well past the demographic of the Fab Four and their fan base.
Working for 2SM at the time, the equivalent of KIIS FM today, the station had sent him to London the week before to get the jump on the competition. It was a costly exercise –  but worth every penny – still paying off for Rogers 50 years later.
